1.8 V analog and digital core supply voltage
Serial data link with reduced range LVDS outputs
Correlated double sampler (CDS) with −3 dB, 0 dB, +3 dB,
and +6 dB gain
6 dB to 42 dB, 10-bit variable gain amplifier (VGA)
12-bit, 50 MHz ADC
Black level clamp with variable level control
Complete on-chip timing generator
Precision Timing core with 310 ps resolution @ 50 MHz
On-chip, 3 V horizontal and RG drivers
6 mm × 6 mm, 40-lead LFCSP_VQ
The AD9971 is a highly integrated CCD signal processor for
high speed digital video camera applications. Specified at pixel
rates of up to 50 MHz, the AD9971 consists of a complete analog
front end with analog-to-digital conversion combined with a
programmable timing driver. The Precision Timing™ core allows
adjustment of high speed clocks with 310 ps resolution at
50 MHz operation. The AD9971 also contains a reduced range
LVDS interface for the data outputs.
The analog front end includes black level clamping, CDS, VGA,
and a 50 MSPS, 12-bit ADC. The timing driver provides the high
speed CCD clock drivers for RG, HL, and H1 to H4. Operation
is programmed using a 3-wire serial interface.
APPLICATIONS
Packaged in a space-saving 6 mm × 6 mm, 40-lead LFCSP_VQ,
the AD9971 is specified over an operating temperature range of
−25°C to +85°C.
